Greetings. I am addressing the RS Forum for my wife for this post. I will be joining my wife and a couple friends in Flam in late May. We will all be arriving at different times and from different countries for this trip. My wife will land at Bergen airport on Thursday evening and will stay the night in Bergen. She will be by herself until late Saturday, when her friend arrives. The only set itinerary we have thus far is a house rental for 5 nights in Flam, booked for that Monday, which is the likely day my friend and I arrive.
My wife is struggling with what she (and eventually, her friend) should do Friday through Sunday before the rest of the group arrives. Is there enough to do in and around Bergen to set up base for 3 nights? If so, what day trips/excursions would you recommend? Or, are there any other places you would recommend she stay for that weekend? She would consider renting a car, if needed, but she would likely be more comfortable relying on public transportation. She is interested in the lovely scenery, hiking, biking and she appreciates fine cuisine. Any ideas are appreciated.
